sc138 Taylor Turtle

Hello! This is the card I made for todays sketch challenge. Isnt it funny how you dont notice things about your card until AFTER you've taken the pic of it to upload.LOL! The last tile on this card is turned the wrong way. uh-oh...oh well. NEway this card took a few turns before the last result. When I saw the sketch today I knew I wanted to use my Crate paper scraps from the Taylor collection. I still had some sky blue laying out from yesterday and realized it matched the blue in the paper perfectly. Then I needed to find an image that would fit in the 2" sq diamond panel. I pulled out my cute little turtle since he hasnt seen ink in awhile. I colored my turtle with prismacolor pencils and layered him on choc chip and set him aside to assemble the rest of the card. After cutting all my layers and putting them on my card base I was ready to put my main image on. Another uh-oh my turtle would be sideways. Now...why didnt I think of that before a major duh moment for me. I didnt want to color the turtle again so I decided to cut him out which was harder b/c he was already layered on choc chip. I do like the end result though. Thats what counts right?!?! I think I will go back and add some stickles to the flowers they are colored in sky blue but it doesnt show up very good.

Okay now to go clean and get ready for bday dinners at church tonight. Hope you have a great day!

We are our worst critics. I do not see anything wrong with this as it is but what do I know. I think it is adorable.
